Stan Van Gundy on Jodie Meeks' injury: 'We have no idea what happened'

No one seems to know how Jodie Meeks suffered a small fracture in his back. The shooting guard will miss at least two months recovering from the injury. Some quotes from Stan Van Gundy speaking to reporters about the loss of Jodie Meeks, who will miss at least eight weeks recovering from a stress reaction in his back -- from Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: "It wasn't a matter of him getting hit or anything,'' coach Stan Van Gundy said. "After the first exhibition game, he said there was some tightness. We were going to start him the second game that night and, after a nap, he said...

Jodie Meeks sidelined 8 weeks with stress reaction in lower back

Meeks was expected to start for the Detroit Pistons after signing a 3-year, $19.5 million contract this summer. Instead, he'll open the season recovering from a stress reaction in his lower back.

Jodie Meeks suffers stress reaction in back, sidelined a couple of months

Jodie Meeks will miss a couple of months after a CAT scan Monday revealed a stress reaction in his lower back, Stan Van Gundy told reporters Tuesday. Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News was the first to report the news on Twitter.

He was originally diagnosed with back spasms after waking up that morning with tightness in his back. After sitting out Thursday and Sunday, further examination Monday revealed the extent of his injury. Meeks has no idea how he...

Jodie Meeks injury: Back spasms scratch shooting guard vs. Bucks

Jodie Meeks was a late scratch for the Pistons' second 2014 preseason game. Penciled in to start his second straight preseason game, free agent signee Jodie Meeks was a late scratch on Thursday night against the Milwaukee Bucks due to back spasms. Second-year guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started in his spot. There is no word as to how serious the spasms are and if they will keep Meeks out any longer than a single game (the Pistons play again on Sunday). Meeks was ruled out moments before tip off. In fact, it was such a late call that Pistons public address announcer John Mason still...

Previewing the 2014-15 Pistons: Jodie Meeks

Stan Van Gundy's newest weapon provides much-needing perimeter shooting -- but that's not all. When reviewing game film of Jodie Meeks last season, he reminded me of a former Detroit Piston -- Rodney Stuckey. Wait, wait, don't throw your laptop out the nearest window just yet. He reminds me of Rodney Stuckey ... with 3-point shooting. Stuckey was a quality player whose game was always hampered by his inability to develop a jump shot. Meeks is everything good about Stuckey plus the ability to sink 150 3s per season. Jodie Meeks is everything good about Rodney Stuckey plus the ability to...
